Flying Dreams

Postby Lady Daffodil » Fri Jan 15, 2016 10:07 am

Every once in a while I dream that I'm flying. And I don't mean in an airplane. I take a leap and then I'm flying, just like Superman, with my arms outstretched in front of me. If I want to go higher, I raise my arms, if I want to go lower, I lower my arms. One time I was actually teaching someone else how to fly! I love these dreams, because they feel so real, I can feel the air rushing by me, and the scenery is so clear, and I always remember them after I wake up, and I never forget them. They seem to happen in the morning, just before I wake up. I always know that I'm dreaming, and I am enjoying it so much that I don't want to wake up. I just love having these kinds of dreams, and when I remember them I get a good feeling. :excited: Are these lucid dreams?

That's odd. Seems a lot of work. We usually fly sitting down.

LOL. It's not a lot of work at all, I just fly through the air "with the greatest of ease" as the song says. It feels wonderful and I always feel good when I wake up from one of these dreams. I wish I'd have them more often! :D

I find my flying exhausting... think I'm still learning. I can only fly when I'm fleeing from someone or something. I have to almost flap my arms and I can't do it for long

Flying dreams are generally a wake-up call to your conscious mind. Having experienced flying in your dream is a true characteristic of lucid dreams

I fly in different ways. Sometimes it's easy others it's hard and I can barely get off the ground.I once flew into space. It was very cold and quiet.quite lonely. Sometimes I'm just playing ball and take off.

Lady D,

Yes, these are almost certainly lucid dreams.
Lady Daffodil wrote: I always know that I'm dreaming
This is pretty much the definition of lucid dreaming. When you become aware that you are dreaming, you become lucid. Most of us choose to fly once we realize that we are lucid. Not sure why, just a thing that we do. I love this sort of dreaming, too.

I think that it is an elevated state of consciousness. It is similar to the state of contemplative prayer. We can communicate in a special way with God in this state. If you read the Book of Daniel, it would seem that he engaged in lucid dreaming for his prophesying. He was able to identify King Nabuchodonosor's dream by dreaming himself. I believe that he went into lucid dreaming and asked God to reveal to him the kings dream. He was also well trained in interpreting dreams.

After lucid dreaming , I will often observe events from the dream in my waking life.

Dream on!

Peace,

Gee, I just opened this thread and noticed that I'd posted this originally in January of 2016. I forgot all about it. I guess that's why when I went to register for this forum last week it said I'd already registered! I actually forgot that I had registered last year, LOL!

Anyway, thanks for your answers. My flying dreams are very fun and relaxing. Occasionally, I do have trouble getting off the ground, but this doesn't happen so much any more, it's usually effortless, and raising or lowering my arms isn't strenuous at all. (You all do realize that I'm talking about flying WITHOUT the use of a plane, right? :D Sometimes I even fly right through walls and windows! I can feel it, but it just feels like I'm going through a thin film of some sort. Very interesting, huh? Sometimes I am teaching another person to fly, I'm holding hands with the person and telling him/her what to do. :)

Dear Lady D,

Sounds like fun. Yes, I believe we are all talking about flying like Superman. Sheena is joking. Sheena kind of grows on you after a while.

Peace,
OM

Could be that the writer of this song was learning to fly:
